1. Overview: The tuition industry as a whole vacillates between education and entertainment, which has resulted in Academia’s internal “Edutainment Meter” that measures market sentiment and the behaviour of the industry. 2. Current Analysis: Due to the rise of the entertainment industry in Singapore, Swiftonomics, and a significant increase in marketing spend, the overall industry is weighting entertainment more heavily than education. Concurrently, a lack of direction and consensus amongst Singapore’s intelligentsia about the meaning and future of education is also contributing to a lack of clarity as to the direction of education. 3.

Academia’s own approach to education is not linked to any macro or micro trends we have identified in the broader tuition industry.

TESTIMONIALS

 J, RI Student, 2022

Dr Coomber has been instrumental to my growth as a thinker and a learner. From the time I joined Academia in Secondary 3 to the day I sat for my A level GP paper, his tips and guidance have stuck with me. His patience and willingness to entertain seemingly silly ideas (that other teachers may […]

K, RI Student, 2022

I can say without a shadow of doubt that Dr Coomber is by far the best teacher I’ve ever had the privilege of learning from. He is extremely good at his job— his detailed essay packs and structured lessons speak for themselves, as do the nuanced and highly specific skill sets he teaches his students. […]

I, ACJC Student, 2022

Dr Coomber is a patient, dedicated and extremely experienced teacher. His wealth of knowledge is remarkable and he is able to break down difficult concepts for me to understand and he has helped me to master the format of GP papers, as well as increased the breadth of my general knowledge and piqued a genuine […]

M, RI Student, 2021

Despite the brevity of my time with Dr Coomber, his nuanced and challenging lessons have proved to an invaluable resource in my preparation for the General Paper. His meticulousness in taking note of each of his students difficulties thoroughly impressed me and it was through this he was able to deepen our understanding of social […]

Z, HCI Student, 2021

Throughout my 2 years of GP lessons with Dr Coomber, he has always been patient and detailed in offering personal feedback and input. Be it explaining writing and answering techniques or equipping students with the content knowledge, Dr Coomber has always strived to help his students achieve both. He is always willing to go the […]

J, RI Student, 2021

The A-Level General Paper curriculum increasingly places an emphasis on critical thinking – being able to critically analyse question, be it an essay or a comprehension question and answering based on the needs of the question. Dr Coomber is an adaptable and understanding teacher who makes it a point to assess every student that he […]

V, HCI Student, 2021

“Dr. Coomber is one of the best GP teachers I’ve learnt under. Over the course of his tuition, I found myself reading and writing about topics I never thought I would be interested in. My GP grades improved drastically after just a few lessons, as Dr Coomber provided me with targetted feedback for both Paper […]

J, HCI Student, 2020

“I joined lessons with Dr Coomber quite late compared to other students in the tuition, joining only at the beginning of J2. I started with an S grade, struggling to grasp the concepts of the entire subject. I found it difficult to grapple with the basics and foundations of writing essays and answering techniques of […]

- HCI Student, 2020

K, HCI Student, 2020

“Both unsure of what to expect and not excelling in English back in Secondary school, I enrolled under Dr Coomber right from the very start. Initially, I failed comprehensions left and right, everywhere I went, and struggled with unpacking essay questions, much less coming up with suitable topic sentences. Yet, under Dr Coomber’s patient guidance, […]
